Frida Kahlo's life and work has served as inspiration to artists of many identities for decades. The title for this show comes from Zora Neale Hurston's seminal novel, Their Eyes Were Watching God. Although Kahlo's work has often been described as Surrealist, she resisted the label, asserting, "I don't paint dreams or nightmares, I paint my own reality."

The Dream is the Truth will be on display at Buena Park City Hall Council Chamber September 12 - November 2, 2017. The Exhibiting Artist Program nurtures partnerships between artists, presenters, art organizations and the greater Buena Park Community.

For more information or to confirm viewing availability, please contact the Fine Arts Division at (714) 562-3868.
